    RMGI becoming Available at More Outlets… For Less

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Tapes.com has the best price of anyone I’ve seen so far.

    US Recording Media has had it for the longest but they were always the most expensive site on the planet, even when they only had Quantegy before the tape crisis of ’05. So it’s not that RMGI is any pricier… it’s just the people to first carry it are.

    Half-inch SM911 is $62.97 at US Recording Media, but only $54.75 at tapes.com...still too high but it will come down.

    SpicIT is also a bit less than US Recording Media, but they don't have anything but 1/4" right now.

    One thing for sure... I wouldn't pay $79.00 for the last reel of Quantegy 456 when I can get RMGI SM911 for $55.00.

    That's pretty cheap, especially for such a high caliber tape. Deserves a bump!

    Does RMGI have a Quantegy 457 equivalent, I've only seen mentions of 456.

    I'm not sure but it looks like they are only in 1.5 mil. Zonal does 1.0 mil 1/4" tape but I think it's difficult to source in the US.

    Eeep, that does not make my Tascam 22-4 very happy.

    TKD SM is the pro grade.

    Maxell, BTW, does not have a "w" in it.

    Oh, that's very good. They only mention 456 when talking about it, but a 7 inch 1800 foot reel would make it 457. Phew, my 22-4 just breathed a sigh of relief. I wish I had known that before I placed my end of the world order with Quantegy, but at $8.25 a reel I'm not kicking myself too hard.
